Wax For Dreads The Dreadwax Scam Exposed


Dreading Methods

@SE - I agree 100%!

Its true.. Disability doesn't pay very much at all, even with dependant children!  You and I get about the same amount for disability every month.. I don't know how you manage living on just $200 a month though!  My situation is very different.. with 3 kids and a husband (pharmacist).. so basically, my check is purely supplemental.  However, I can't imagine how you do it, SE.. your heart is a universe in itself for saving all these dreadies from the harsh world of lies and capitalism!  Does our new site have a "donate" button so we could help you somehow?  Perhaps PayPal or something??  I know you're not in this to make money, please don't think thats what I'm implying.. but to help with the cost of running this valuable site!  I know my doctors visits and medications cost a grip, and surely you've got medical expenses too.. I think every little bit would help out.  Don't you think?

Stripping oils from hair?


General Questions

A less harsh alternative would be baby shampoo (paraben free) to help with the oils.  My hair makes enough oil for 5 grown folk.. so I use baby shampoo most of the time.  Its very gentle (hypo-allergenic), no residue, no lathering agents, rinses out completely and the lavender smells good :o)  I've used it for almost 2yrs without any problems or worries.. I hope this gives you another option! Good luck Wink2015-11-08 10.17.01.jpg

Introduce Yourself

@azdreads & @garism - Agreed 100% Happy

 

@honjah-kassa - The dreading process is truly a journey.  Its not just about hair.. its about mind, body and spirit.  Dreads teach patience during the process, tolerance of others, and strength both inside and out.  You grow as a person, mentally and physically.  The journey is so much deeper.. and everyday yeilds little accomplishments and milestones to be proud of!  Embrace the struggle, accept the lessons to be learned and you will be stronger, healthier and gracious for your journey! <3

Wax For Dreads The Dreadwax Scam Exposed


Dreading Methods

Susan Diana:
Oh boy! There must be good money (unfortunately) in creating waxed dreads! Blood money though, I'm sure, to the people who have had to live with the results. Like I said, no conscience when there's money involved.

 

Like you with your stylist, a great number of people place their trust in "friendly-faced people" fronting capitalism in this country.  As mentioned, I'm so glad you've recovered from your horrific experience as well!  But this is only one aspect of a much bigger picture in this country.. always be careful who you trust!  These big businesses and corporations train these people to be falsely trustworthy on purpose - to trap you.  As SE wrote about Jonny Clean - even Jonny knew he was doing wrong, but the almighty dollar is more important than human sensitivity!  How did our country, further yet mankind, get to be so self-indulgent, indifferent, and unemotional? .. it boggles the mind, seriously!

I'm here because I was researching dreads and stumbled upon SE's site several years ago.. information contained in this site is trustworthy, common sense, well researched, logical and true.  There are still  good people out there willing to help those of us when needed.. people with kindness, honesty, and love for others.  Words cannot express the gratitude I have for this site and SE.. otherwise I may have ended up with dreadlocks looking like the photo's above!

Finally took the plunge!


Introduce Yourself

- Welcome to the Adventure, Shannon!

You don't have to do much to your locks, just let them be themselves!  A wool hat, or a tam, or slouch-beanie are great ways to hide them during their "messy phase".. but as my husband has found out, his tam restricted movement.. and you want movement because that is how hair tangles naturally.  For example, someone brushes their long hair, but then gets on a motorcycle for a ride.  You can imagine what long hair would look like after that!  Movement, clean & dry, and natural is the only way to go!  Good luck, honey, and yell if you need anything! ♥
